An enormous sinkhole almost swallowed thousands of fish and a two-person boat, after the largest dam in Franca, Sao Paolo, Brazil was drained accidentally late Friday afternoon.
This footage is just terrifying!
Thousands of fish were killed and a two-person boat stalked into a hole after the largest dam in Franca, Brazil was completely drained by mistake on September 15, 2017.
Staff of the dam jumped into a boat to try saving some fish trapped in the mud after the water began to flow uncontrolled to Córrego do Espraiado.
The terrifying video shows the employees’ boat being sucked just above the point of flow that created a huge sinkhole in the middle of the mud. The officials were rescued by a crane and were not injured.
The containment structures had been opened to measure the flow of the Castelinho Dam, but the closure of the gates was hindered by tree branches.
Meanwhile, all the water drained through the abyss. There are thousands of dead fish.
